I heard they were calling some nurses back too. I wonder if they were long time employees or some of the new grads? Anyone know anything? I know rumors get started and don't want anyone to get their hopes up.

I know a retired rn who since retiring has worked part time in local doctors office last night she phoned to say kdmc has called her to work part time she will start today and work through the weekend. this lady never worked part time at kdmc before so why are they calling her now?sounds like kdmc wanted to cut full time
how does sean or shawn miller still have a job 5 hr 28 jobs & hire part time so as not to pay benefits. Someone needs to follow up with this how many other part timers have they called this week?
that doesn't make since because full time and part time have basically the same benefits the only difference I know if is on vacation time accrual

I heard they have found out some workers were calling in scripts on non patients of the dr listed, no matter what the script was for, this put the dr's and kdmc in a position of liability and shouldnt there be criminal prosecution on my former co worker?

Good thinking, thank you but I am a guy.
Kitty. Sorry for the misinformation concerning Fred's salary. You must have better inside information. However, since I AM RUNNING MY MOUTH OFF aren't we basically on the same side. It seems to me the only difference we have is that I am trying to get people who do not necessarily have a dog in the fight to get involved and work towards having Fred and the hospital board removed. To be honest, it sounds to me like you have a personal axe to grind with Fred because of his salary. If it comes across this way to me, then I am sure other people feel the same way and will not pay attention to your posts. I do not doubt what you said about Don Fraley; however, I am also fairly sure this may have been more of an issue concerning wrongful termination. It may have to do with his reporting on fraud; however, investigations for Medicare/Medicaid fraud is performed at the state/federal level. If you have kept up with the national news over the past couple of weeks the Feds busted several places in Florida, Louisiana, I believe Texas and California and those people were arrested. No mention of any Kentucky hospital. Finally Kitty, if you are going to post try to do it without sounding too irrational and having personal vendettas. It just going to turn people off. Hell, it almost turned me off and I am on your side.
YOU'RE PRETTY MUCH CORRECT ON ALMOST ALL COUNTS EXCEPT THE MEDICARE FRAUD INVESTIGATIONS. YES, IT IS FEDERAL. BUT HOSPITALS CAN'T BE ANNOUNCED UNTIL AFTER THE INVESTIGATION, AND THE OIG ANNOUNCES WHAT CHARGES WILL BE MADE. KDMC IS BEING INVESTIGATED IN MORE THAN ONE ARENA.

KDMC still pays benefits for part time employees the sames as the do for full time employees.

Ok...Now all you union supporters explain this one to me...WHY is it that all you did was piss and moan about being layed off and complain about how bad KDMC was, and when it came down to it, you didnt do anything to continue working there. What i mean is WHY didnt you bump anyone????? ITS VERY FUNNY how only 29 people signed up to bump, but when it came to bumping someone of lower seniority on another job, only 3 or 4 people actually decided to continue to work...SO...all you UNION SUPPORTERS..STOP bitchin and moaning and complaining about how you dont have a job or cant pay the bills...you have no one to blame but yourself at this point...you had the opportunity to continue to work, just not in the job you had, and YOU chose otherwise. So PLEASE EXPLAIN yourselves... 80+ union workers layed off, and yet only 3 or 4 actually chose to continue to working....
You need to get your facts straight. Union meeting Thurs. 1:00, 4:00, and 7:00. See ya there

I spent 18+ years at that "HH"..... some were good and some bad, mostly bad.. They should have saved the money they invested on those seminars on "how to treat people", because the people who had to take them wasn't the individuals who needed them...
The day I walked out of place, was the happiest and most sane day of my life. I left because I decided, if I can not treat others the way I want my family or friends treated, I want no part of it...
People that lost their job, I am sorry for you, but you will be so much better off in the long run. I figure in the end, what goes around, comes around.... That administration, including the board, will gets whats coming to them!!xxxxooooo

Did you guys know that most of the dietary and housekeeping jobs are posted on the intranet to be filled? Why did they eliminate those jobs, then suddenly post them for others to apply???? Sounds pretty dirty to me.

Well if it's on the intranet, only employees can see it, can't they? The only jobs showing on their website are two ARNP positions.

I don't mean to be divisive. I just see what's happening in a larger sphere than most in Ashland. Blaming Jackson is misplaced blame. My wife works at KDMC... we are tense as well... but she and I place the blame where it needs to be... square on the forehead of Barack Obama. While he, his wife and family go on extravagant vacations every couple weeks (at our expense), we suffer. His policies are killing America. Sorry, Democrats... that's the guy you placed in the Oval Office. Thanks, alot.
You have hijacked a forum originally meant for people who are already terrified about losing their jobs or even keeping their jobs at an understaffed hospital. It's obvious you have no compassion for them. You are only interested in your political rants. Please start a different forum for the uninformed, regergitation of Beck-style bashing of our President.

The Union told the people not to bump...
NOW why on earth would YOUR PRECIOUS UNION tell you not to bump and go back to work???? That is ludicrous... That has to be the dumbest thing I have ever heard.. A UNION telling you not to work... Go Figure.... Still no one has attempted to address what I said in my other posts...Been several days now... They must be busy mailbox watching....
